One stat shows how much the Chargers really missed Keenan Allen

BY foxsports • January 27, 2016

It's an understatement to suggest the San Diego Chargers missed their top wide receiver.

Keenan Allen was on a historic tear when he fell to a midseason kidney laceration. Judging by this statistic, his team never truly recovered from his season-ending injury.

Via U-T San Diego's Michael Gehlken:

For the better part of eight weeks, Allen was the Chargers offense. He was on pace for an 134-catch, 1,450-yard year before his season was put on hold.

The Bolts know Allen can shoulder that burden, when healthy. They shouldn't ask him to again; a more balanced attack in 2016 prevent the Chargers from relying so heavily on his considerable skills.
